know you like to put graphics on your page. There is
better than a site which has been done by a professional
graphics designer. The perfect balance between graphics, color,
fonts, photos and layout is rare and a wonder to behold.
the other hand, a site with bad graphics or some obvious
blunders can be agonizing and even painful to look at. Here are
some of the more common errors.
graphics have their place on the web. Some sites give
massive numbers of wallpaper images, which by definition are
very large. In fact, I know of a site which offers over a
thousand Tomb Raider wallpapers that is very good.
you want to avoid is using large graphics on your main
pages. Instead, you can use a technique such as showing
thumbnail images or links to the larger graphics. Thus, those
people who want the large graphics can get them, while those who
do not are not forced to wait for them to load. The Tomb Raider
site solved this problem by including 100 very small (32 x 32
pixel) thumbnails on a page. Clicking on an image displays the
larger wall wallpaper.
Improperly Optimized Graphics
of the common graphics formats (GIF, PNG and JPG) allow
compression of various kinds. One common error is to not take

number of colors in a GIF image, which makes it smaller. Or you

using plug-ins (Adobe Acrobat comes to mind as an excellent
plug-in to use) they should be avoided when possible. Most of
your visitors will not take the time to install a plug-in just
to see your web site.
your background graphics simple and neat. You want to
sure the graphics are subtle and contract greatly with your
text. In other words do not use a light pink background with
light red characters. Very hard to read. Also avoid neon or
other bright backgrounds - these tend to so overpower your web
site that people leave almost immediately.
